Louise Bourgeois – Spirals

Whilst exploring spirals as part of my ideas for the Bodmin prison project, I was reminded of Louise Bourgeois who used spirals fairly prolifically throughout her work as a way of conveying mood and mental state.

Spirals 2005 – Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois used spirals in a range of different mediums sculpture, embroidery, prints, drawings etc. Feelings of being trapped, enclosed, an inability to escape, anxiety and despair are all explored using the symbol of a spiral.
